Fenella Fielding returns for more Memoir Shows in 2018!

Fenella Fielding will reading from her fabulous memoirs in several more live shows all in the diary across the rest of the year. Having attended a couple of the shows earlier this year, I can tell you her performances are amazing.

Fenella Fielding is best known for her 1960s film appearances in classic comedies including ‘Carry On Screaming’, ‘Doctor in Clover’ and ‘Carry On Regardless’. She was the voice of the Blue Queen in ‘Dougal and the Blue Cat’ and the telephone operator and loudspeaker voice in ‘The Prisoner’. Her illustrious career in theatre includes the title roles in ‘Hedda Gabler’ and ‘Colette’. She’s fondly remembered for a number of appearances on the ‘Morecambe & Wise Show’ as well as playing The Vixen in ‘Uncle Jack’. 

They are very personal stories about innocence, early struggles, professional jealousies and intriguingly a chapter about London tarts and gangsters. The stories are witty, warm and beautifully observed scenes from an extraordinary life – expressing great warmth for the characters encountered… and all told in that unmistakable, ever alluring Fenella Fielding voice.

The performances will conclude with short Q&As with Fenella hosted by Simon McKay, co-author of the book and a personal friend of Fenella. 

Fenella will be performing on the following dates and venues:

Crazy Coqs, Piccadilly, London:

Saturday 2nd June, 2pm
Tuesday 10th July, 7pm
